      Hero (CO): $3.05 (152.5 bb)
      BTN: $2.05 (102.5 bb)
      SB: $2.16 (108 bb)
      BB: $1.38 (69 bb)
      UTG: $3.45 (172.5 bb)
      MP: $2.45 (122.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J A
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, BTN calls $0.08, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.19) T 7 A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.16, BTN calls $0.16

      Turn: ($0.51) A (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.24, BTN calls $0.24

      River: ($0.99) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Maybe bet turn bigger? My 1/2 pot is something stupid...2/3-3/4 for protection and fold on action?

      River is check because weak aces aren't gonna pay us on a flush board, are they?

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is good.

      On the I like your cbet.

      I'm definitely betting the turn more - around $0.4.

      As played, I'd just bet around $0.4-$0.5 on the river to take value from worse Ax. I really doubt someone on NL2 will fold his trips in this spot.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hm, I agree that they won't fold their trips, but how about playing passively with a flush on the flop? Fish likes slowplay, on top of that I was aggressive.

      As played, would you fold the river on a 2/3 pot size bet?

      TY

      Hey German,

      If he has a flush you are donating some money to him anyway. By not getting value when he doesn't have it we lose part of our EV in the long run.

      As Kymupa said bet turn bigger and river as well and we can still bet/fold vs a loose passive fish on the river.

      If we check and he bets he can still have some worse Ax or maybe a busted draw so I don't think we can fold. But we need to be the ones betting since we don't know if he valuebets much worse or not, but we know he is very likely to call more.

      True. It all boils down to bet/bet/bet, no matter how deep you go into details :D

      Thanks guys.
